Fisher Releases Latest Single Titled “You Little Beauty”
The track is a groovy disco-infused house banger
Australian house DJ and producer Fisher has become a staple in the EDM scene thanks to his massive hit “Losing It”. The Grammy-nominated track was heard on every dance floor and festival throughout 2018 and well into the new year. Following its success, Fisher has released his latest official single titled “You Little Beauty”.
The groovy disco-inspired house jam features a vocal sample by late Disco singer Loleatta Holloway. In an interview with Billboard, Fisher states the track’s name is a colloquial slang term used in Australia’s Gold Coast, saying “‘…it’s basically what we always say on Gold Coast when everyone’s going mad, or having fun, or doing something goofy.”

Kaskade Drops Redux 003
The new album is quintessentially Kaskade
The deeper, more underground sounds of Kaskade have always found themselves in what he coined his Redux sets. A laidback approach to the more dancefloor friendly tracks, Redux sees Kaskade in a more intimate setting. After a couple of official single releases in 2018 and 2019, Kaskade’s latest album, Redux 003 is here.
With familiar songs like “Fun”, and “Tight”, to a remake of the iconic “Tom’s Diner”, Redux 003 is a great representation of the genre-jumping Kaskade is capable of doing. The 18-track album also sees the EDM heavyweight team up with Felix Cartal, Late Night Alumni, Gorgon City, and Lokii.
